Trends: Rebellion

I've noticed a trend...

- Metis rebellion
- Fenian invasion
- Indian Liberating Army recruitment1

...all of these historical events have happened where I grew up. Is it something in the water up there?! I wonder why the area attracts such passionate movements? Interesting to ponder, that is for sure!

1 ..."General" James Dickson - The 'general' came to Red River to recruit mercenaries who would help him establish a free Indian state in California. The fame of Metis hunters had spread across North America. Dickson hoped to muster them among his fighting men. From Cuthbert Grant history
